  • Ālī Qāpū ( Turko-Persian word for Imperial Gate ) is a grand palace in Isfahan , located on the western side of the Naqsh-e Jahan Square .and was originally designed as a vast portal. It is forty-eight meters high and there are seven floors, each accessible by a difficult spiral staircase. In the sixth floor music room, deep circular niches are found in the walls, having not only aesthetic value, but also acoustic. The name Ālī Qāpū, from Arabic Ālī, "Imperial or Great", and Turkic Qāpū meaning "gate", was given to this place as it was right at the entrance to the Safavid palaces which stretched from the Maidan Naqsh-i-Jahan to the Chahār Bā gh Boulevard . The building, another wonderful Safavid edifice, was built by decree of Shah Abbas the Great in the early seventeenth century. It was here that the great monarch used to entertain noble visitors, and foreign ambassadors. Shah Abbas, here for the first time celebrated the Nowruz (New Year's Day) of 1006 AH / 1597 C.E.

  • 3. The mosque is unusual because it hasneither a minaret nor a courtyard, andbecause steps lead up to entrance. Thiswas probably because the mosque wasnever intended for public use, but ratherserved as the worship place for the womenof the shahs haremMoschhea Sheikh Lotfallah este deosebităde oarece nu are nici un minaret şi nici curteinterioară iar la intrare are scări. Se pare cădatorează aceste deosebiri faptului că nu afost destinată uzului public ci trebuia să fiedoar loc de închinăciune pentru femeile dinharemul şahului.
